Editorial Reviews

Review

“If there were a "Who's Who" of outstanding teachers of psych, it would include most, or perhaps all, of the authors of the chapters of this book. They are not only teachers, but also scholars of teaching, who have useful advice for both novice and experienced teachers of psychology.” (Bill McKeachie 2005-08-04)

"The Psychology Research Handbook: A Primer for Graduate Students and Research Assistants, Second Edition, edited by Fred Leong and James Austin, fully fulfills its mission to provide graduate students with knowledge of the entire research process from thinking about research, formulating a design, conducting the research, and publishing a paper.  But the book and its many contributors do much more.  In explaining the research process to students, the authors help to demystify why things are done they way they are, to understand the logic of science, and to appreciate the research endeavor - tasks that are often not conveyed in graduate programs.  The Handbook makes an important and valuable contribution to graduate education." (Stanley Sue 2005-08-04)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book. Some things on there are slightly outdated (such as searching online for articles, etc.) but generally it covers a lot of great areas if you want to conduct research in a graduate level. Things like how to choose a topic, to how to critiques an article or look for limitations in your study or others' is explained in a simple and practical matter. My professor who is a big name in cognitive psychology research highly recommended it and I am not disappointed so far.
